Exploring the interior of an Icelandic glacier with a small group tour.
Examining a map of Newfoundland, I noticed some dashed lines curving out over the Atlantic Ocean and paralleling the coast. One of these lines led out from the remote port of Burgeo, on the south coast, and looped along the coastline, stopping at a few tiny and isolated communities. I wanted to experience one of these outports, which are connected to the rest of Newfoundland only by a small ferry, so we made plans to visit the village of Francois in the middle of February.
An account of an early October trip to Horseshoe Lake in The Enchantments, one of the most sublime experiences we have ever enjoyed, with its stunning mountains, Alpine Larches in rich gold, and unafraid Mountain Goats.
Photographs and impressions of mountain details from an October backpacking trip to Stuart Lake and Horseshoe Lake in Washington State’s Enchantments, where we observed Alpine Larch at the peak of color.
We traveled on a small boat along the south coast of the Big Island of Hawaii in order to experience the dramatic natural event of lava flowing into the sea.
Backpacking in The Enchantments in Washington State, a rugged high country wilderness in the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest, where Mountain Goats are friendly and Alpine Larches light the landscape with golden autumn color.
After a wonderfully dry summer, Seattle and the Cascade Mountains have entered autumn. When I heard a report that snow was falling at Snoqualmie Pass, I organized a hike to Gold Creek Pond to try and photograph snow and autumn leaves; seeing Kokanee Salmon in Gold Creek was a bonus.
